EXTRA LATEX LAYER TIME? LIBIDEX COATS, JACKETS AND SUITS

As we head into February, the weather in the UK and many other locations around the world will very possibly be at or near its wintery worst. But ironically, this is also the time when a lot of fetish event promoters emerge from hibernation to offer us their first party dates of the New Year (see our previous blog item here for details).

This can result in a dilemma. On the one hand, you’re keen to wear some latex to one of the first fetish parties of 2024. On the other hand, unless you’re based somewhere like Australia, going out at this time is likely to involve some less-than-joyful exposure to cold, wet and even snowy weather.

This might be a serious deterrent to some, but for others among us (of, perhaps, a more enthusiastic disposition), it provides a good enough reason to simply add another layer of latex to our existing outfits. Even though no one will be pretending an extra layer of rubber provides much more protection against the cold!

So we’ve embarked here on a trawl through the big range of Libidex latex to pick out some ‘extra layer’ suggestions for you — focusing primarily on coats and jackets for women and men. However, since these categories on the website include latex boleros for women and latex suits for men, we’ll be covering some favourites among those too. Our suggestions also include a number of our current best-sellers which, as you may be aware, are offered at 10% off their regular prices.

Women’s jackets
